Overview Using humor, Buchanan exhorts women to look at their life story through a new and different viewfinder, as well as to come to grips with the past that has shaped them--all in order to move on to live a more enriched life.
For every woman with a big-haired lady buried inside them, its time to live large and unleash the authentic person God created you to be. Sue Buchanan, everybodys favorite cheerleader, tells it like it is as she exhorts her beloved readers to look at their life story through a new and different viewfinder, come to grips with the past that has shaped them and then, with Gods help, move on to live a more enriched life. Sue can relate to women who deal with the difficulties of daily life (nasty people, weight and image concerns, aging, God issues and parenting) as well as the bigger crises of life (hers was surviving breast cancer). And yet, in the midst of it all, Sue reminds readers to take hold of their thinking and give themselves permission to laugh and unleash the cute, witty, delightful, intelligent, passionate, authentic, interesting life-of-the-party person they always dreamed they would be!

Reviews - What do customers think about Bigger The Hair The Closer To God?
All about living life to the fullest Oct 15, 2007
In her recent inspirational book, Sue Buchanan writes about an African tribe who wore their hair puffy on top, and may have believed they could be pulled up directly to heaven because of their thick hair. In The Bigger the Hair, the Closer to God, Buchanan, who has survived breast cancer for 24 years, writes of ways to be closer to God that will surprise and startle the reader--including what it means to be "a big-haired lady."
When Buchanan was diagnosed with breast cancer and told she had less than a year to live, she began eating a lot of chocolate. Although this may seem insignificant, for the author letting oneself go, laughing and enjoying oneself all are conducive to leading a better life--and can bring the individual closer to God.
Buchanan does not like couple painted in the famous painting "American Gothic" by Grant Wood. The man with the pitchfork seems too severe and the old woman, a little like the granny from the Beverly Hillbillies. Why aren't they smiling? Where are their children?
The author suggests we all learn to live a fuller life. Some of the things that seemed wrong really are not wrong. Buchanan suggests nail manicures, massages, becoming the life of the party--as some of the many ways to expand one's life.
There are also more reflective sections in the book on Buchanan's battle with cancer and her daughter Dana's similar struggle. These inspirational passages can help anyone undergoing an ordeal or who has an obstacle to overcome. Buchanan describes losing a part of her body, a loss that she became aware of and which at first frightened her more than the loss of life.
Buchanan discusses serious issues as well as ways to enjoy life, and the author acts as cheerleader as she talks you through difficulties. The book touches on deeper subjects than might seem apparent from a superficial glance.
Armchair Interviews says: Its cheerfulness will stick in the reader's mind long after it is read.
